Snags: the Airbnbs of the Animal World

Join us for a nature walk to enjoy God’s creation!

Have you ever been on a road trip & had a hard time finding a place to stay, & when you finally found a place, it wasn’t what you’d hoped? This is happening a lot in the animal world, especially for species who depend on snags (dead standing logs) for all or part of their life cycles. Join Carling Dewar to learn about the competitive market for snags, which species depend on them, & the solutions that animals & humans have come up with to address this problem.

About Carling Dewar: Carling Dewar holds a Masters of Environmental Science from the UofT & is involved in a variety of conservation initiatives, from flying squirrel research in Haliburton Forest, to species-at-risk policy implementation in Ont & across Canada. She continues to support these initiatives through volunteer work with the Kawartha Wildlife Centre & in her position with Ancient Forest Exploration & Research as a Forest Ecologist & Outreach Coordinator.
